The idea that however many years have passed in Oz will seem like only a day in Kansas, is something not in any of the old Oz books or movies. It was a recurring element in C.S. Lewis' Narnia fantasies, written years after The Wizard of Oz (1939) was already established. See more »
Unusual Credit Style: In the closing credits, there are numerous entries for co-producers & other "producer" positions that list both husband & wife for each credit entry, such as "Jack & Jill Jones". Some credits are simply listed as a family unit. One such co-producer is listed as "The Ross Family". It is rare that credits are given in groupings of families. Most credits are a single person's name. See more »
I find it hard to trust the 1st dozen or so reviews on some films found at this sight. Of course I could be mistaken but, I saw this film and found it to be full of nonsense and trite cliché dialog. With the mega cast that participated in the making of this film I expected a much better and more interesting story to be explored in this sequel classic.
As I watched the various characters enter the beginning scenes I felt they were very cardboard like. The few comedic scenes seemed almost too childish even for children. As to the animation, it was not to my liking. It seemed that it was taken from generic Saturday morning cartoons. It was bland and even boring to a degree.
Lastly I noticed that production costs of this animated film were surprisingly much more than I expected it to be. Nearly a million bucks a minute. I felt that for that kind of mega bucks this should have been a higher quality of product. The next few weeks will show weather the movie goers buy and or embrace this less than stellar movie.
Not every children's Animated film can be a "Frozen" or a "Finding Nemo" but they should at least aim for that quality and level of product.
